Genomic research has helped unlock important discoveries and medical advances, but interpreting genomics data has many inherent challenges.
Metabolimcs can help address these challenges by providing a functional readout of the molecular phenotype and tracing metabolite changes back to genetic and non-genetic influences. This helps detect the parts of the genome that are actively engaged in composing the phenotype and a method for informing on the function of these genes.
This comprehensive eBook details how metabolomics, by virtue of it being the core molecular phenotyping technology, is a keystone technology for genome discovery. It includes both detailed scientific exploration of metabolomics in genomics research, as well as multiple case studies.
